Event. The Circular Head Show is back and bringing with it a new interest.

The Circular Head Agricultural Society is introducing ‘Know Your Meat Cuts’ to the historical family event.

In partnership with Greenham Tasmania, Temma Farm, Perry’s Quality Meats and Lapoinya Abattoirs, patrons will learn of the different meat cuts, where on the animal the cut comes from and how to prepare the meat for consumption at two separate demonstrations.

Greenham Tasmania and Temma Farm will supply beef and lamb for butchers Josh Perry and Gavin Peirce to demonstrate the cuts and uses of the meat. Take a look into the making of sausages or savour the taste of delicious tastings.

This will incorporate cooking demonstrations by Tracey Martin who will not only utilise meat cuts but scallops supplied by Hursey Seafoods and octopus from TOP Fish.

The demonstrations will be held throughout the day at 11am and 1.30pm.

Following the demonstrations, the meat cuts will be donated to a raffle put on by the Rocky Cape and Smithton Lions clubs together with the Circular Head Show Society. More than $2000 worth of meat will be distributed through to the first, second and third raffle prize winners and a further 10 prizes will also be up for grabs.

Raffle tickets will be sold in Smithton throughout November and in Stanley on show day.

The family event will also feature all the traditional elements of an agricultural show with wood chopping, historic machinery and car displays, the animal nursery, equestrian events, dairy and beef cattle competitions and the showgirl and showboy competitions. 

The Exhibition Hall will offer a variety of floral displays, fresh produce and baked goods, and art and craft.

A variety of entertainment will keep young and old entertained with show rides, circus performers, face painting and musical performances.

The 109th Circular Head Show will be held on Saturday December 9 at Stanley Recreation Ground. Cost is $10 adults, $5 children or kids under five go free. A $25 family pass is available by contacting Sue Smedley on 0456 003 609 prior to the event.
